Sig P365 Wings NASGW POMA “Best New Handgun”

The updated P365 SAS model was recently awarded the 2019 NASGW POMA-Caliber Award for “Best New Handgun.”

The NASGW-POMA Caliber Awards are a partnership between the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW) and the Professional Outdoor Media Association (POMA) to recognize new and innovative products within the sporting goods industry. Products for the NASGW-POMA Caliber Awards are submitted by the manufacturers for the various product categories and are evaluated for uniqueness, market need, value of the product, ingenuity, and presentation.

“For the second year in a row the SIG SAUER P365 micro-compact concealed carry pistol has been honored with a Caliber Award. This year we brought new innovation to the P365 pistol, and concealed carry, with the P365 SAS,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer, Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “Our proprietary SAS technology removed all the snag points from the pistol and integrated the sights directly into the slide with a flush-mounted FT Bullseye sight that’s intuitive, and easy for the trained or untrained eye to pick-up for fast target acquisition. We could not be more proud to have our continued innovation to the market-leading P365 recognized by these two organizations.”   Continue reading

Springfield Challenges Micro 9mm Carry Market with New Hellcat

Springfield Armory Announces Hellcat: Worlds Highest Capacity Micro 9mm

Seeking to challenge the market segment currently ruled by Sig’s amazingly small 10-round micro-9, the P365, Springfield has announced their latest concealed carry wunderkind, the Hellcat. Although not big fans of the company, this new pistol has us genuinely curious. Although essentially impossible to find locally in our neck of the woods, we’re looking forward to handling the diminutive, well-capacitied, optic-ready pistol at SHOT Show and getting the opportunity to run some rounds through it at Industry Day at the Range in a couple of months.

Springfield’s announcement:

After years of development, we are proud to introduce the Hellcat, the highest capacity micro compact 9mm in the world and the next generation of defensive pistol from Springfield Armory.

“This is the first step in a new direction for Springfield Armory polymer handguns and embodies our disciplined approach to modern firearms design. Every detail of the Hellcat has been shaped by a singular mission — to deliver the definitive concealed carry handgun,” says Dennis Reese, CEO of Springfield Armory.

The 3″ barreled micro compact pistol features a class leading capacity of 11+1 with its patented magazine — 13+1 with the included extended mag — and is the result of years of painstaking development and engineering in addition to intensive collaboration with top engineers, shooters and self defense experts.   Continue reading
